The Seven Sisters Apostolate is a call to strengthen the Church by ensuring that a
Holy Hour is prayed each day of the week for the sole intention of a specific priest or bishop—a “holy wasting” (cf. Mt. 26:10) or lavishing of prayer for his deeper  conformity to Christ.

 St. Elizabeth Ann Seton parish would like to start a group (or two… or three…) But to start we need help.  

Please prayerfully consider becoming part of this very important ministry.

A Seven Sisters group begins when at least seven women respond to a call to the mission of the apostolate.

  • The initial recipient of a Seven Sisters group should be their parish pastor. After the pastor has a committed group, subsequent groups may be formed for others, such as the parochial vicar, a retired priest, a priest serving in a non-parish assignment, or a bishop.
  • Each member commits to a Holy Hour on a distinct day of the week, thus covering a complete week.
  • This generous commitment of one hour per week of prayers is asked for a peried of one year, but can remain open-ended.
